Default Live Rock and oyster shells

I have some DIY "live rock" left over. I never cured it fully so it will have to be soaked first. The stuff I had in my tank was amazing. It is also the best sump media going in my opinion, beyond porous. Just good Oyster Shell Live rock and see for yourself. I am also selling the remainder of the crushed oyster shells that I have (2/3 of a 5kg bag). I made the rock with white pure Portland cement.

Make me an offer. I kinda just need it gone.

Thanks.

If you want to cure DIY rocks easily, place them in your toilet tank. Always new water, so lowering the ph is sped up

Default Cement

Yep, dried cement for my tank. Not like cement dissolves over time especially in water and to boot salt water.

Who in the hell came up with that idea of adding cement to the tank ?

Whoever came up with the idea is smart!

It's a great idea - Kill 2 birds with 1 stone.
